Imagine if you designed the greatest shop layout anyone had ever seen. You’ve made it look so fantastic that everyone who sees it is bound to want to come in and shop there. The only problem with your amazing design is, sadly, that there is no building which is capable of housing it, and so it ends up going unseen by the world at large.
You may be asking yourself how it is possible for someone to make such an oversight. Believe it or not, we have seen this exact scenario happen all too often in our industry. It occurs when people design and create a website without ensuring they have the correct web hosting services for it.
Just as there are many factors which must be considered when looking for the perfect business premises, there are many matters which must be kept in mind when looking for the best web hosting services to meet your needs.
One of the most important considerations is whether the company you choose has servers capable of handling the coding and language of your site. Sites can be built in a wide range of different ways, and the servers they are hosted on must be capable of handling the specific coding, otherwise the site will not work as intended. Making sure that your site will work perfectly on the servers is one of the first questions you need to ask when looking at web hosting services.
Beyond that, there are many other considerations. If you have an e-commerce site then you need web hosting which can handle transactions and secure payments. You also need to have assurance that the hosting services will allow your site to load as fast as possible, minimising downtime that could put visitors off from completing their purchase.
We’ve all seen the adverts on TV from companies offering web hosting services “from as little as…”, with a very appealing, low figure attached to it. However, these providers often include these crucial factors as “optional extras” which pushes the actual price far higher. We don’t believe in hidden costs, so we always offer honest and inclusive pricing for the services you need to ensure you get the best possible hosting home for your website.
